Riviera Travel RV Bengal Ganga

  • Ship Overview
  • Cruises on Riviera Travel RV Bengal Ganga

Built in 2014 to a design based upon the traditional river ship from colonial times the RV Bengal Ganga is an intimate ship with just 28 cabins whilst still having the latest in modern navigation and safety equipment.

Gleaming teak and brass fittings throughout, it’s the perfect way to explore this relatively unexplored part of India in real style.

Our eight-day Ganges river cruise covers 400 miles enabling discovery of parts of this enormous country only just opening up to international visitors, where you are still treated as a guest and almost a curiosity rather than a tourist.

You’ll experience something which many of us have lost touch with, a much slower and simpler pace of life. This is reflected in ample time to just relax on board the RV Bengal Ganga as most days include several hours’ sailing.

Onboard activities include cooking demonstrations with the head chef, lectures on contemporary Indian life, religion and culture and some fascinating documentaries in the evenings.

Life on board is informal and relaxing, with plenty of time to get to know your fellow travellers over a refreshing drink on deck.
